Cambridgeshire Wedding Band FAQs

Planning a wedding is an incredibly fun and yet occasionally head-spinning process for first-time event planners. It's important to consider every aspect of your big day in detail which is why we've put together the following function band booking guide to cover everything you need to know.

How much does it cost to hire a Cambridge wedding band?

We provide bands of various sizes to meet every budget. From Cambridgeshire acoustic bands starting in the region of £500 to 3/4-piece pop/rock cover bands starting between £1000 and £1500.

We also offer an exclusive roster of larger premier party bands for those looking for that extra special something. Our high-end wedding bands offer line-ups that include male and female vocals along with a horn section to include trumpet, sax and trombone.

Many of our bands offer packages to include DJ's who work alongside the band and background music during the meal. Please send us your requirements when when making an enquiry and we'll let you know what's on offer.

What type of music do Cambridgeshire wedding bands play?

With years on the circuit, our wedding bands offer a tried and tested set list to include music for every age-group. Whether you're into old school rock 'n' roll from the likes of Chuck Berry, The Beatles and The Rolling Stones or bang-up-to-date chart toppers such as Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars and Dua Lipa, you'll find something to suit your tastes.

Our function bands ensure that every base is covered, performing a repertoire of music that will appeal to friends and family of all ages. You can expect to hear classic hits from across the board including soul, Motown, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s dance, 90s Britpop, indie/rock and modern pop music.

What packages do wedding bands in Cambridgeshire offer?

All of our quotes include everything you'll need on the day, including a professional sound system, lighting and music throughout the evening until midnight.

The following is a typical example of what many bands offer:

  • Set up and soundcheck from 5:30 pm/6 pm
  • 2 x 60 minute or 3 x 40 minute live sets
  • DJ Playlists throughout the evening
  • Professional sound system (PA system, speakers etc.)
  • Lighting rig
  • Public Liability Insurance
  • PAT tested equipment

If you're looking for ceremony or background wedding music earlier on in the day, many of our bands offer additional options such as solo musicians, acoustic duos and jazz bands. Just let us know what you're looking for in your enquiry.

Do your Cambridgeshire wedding bands offer a DJ service?

Our wedding bands for hire offer an all-inclusive entertainment package to keep you and your guests dancing until midnight. This usually means DJ playlists before, between and after sets, however, many wedding music bands also offer the option to add professional DJ sets for a small additional cost.

A manned DJ set usually involves a member of the band taking requests on the night and mixing tracks on the fly, tailoring the playlist to suit your guests.

What time will our wedding band arrive to set up?

Wedding bands usually base their quote on a standard arrival time of approximately 5:30 pm/6 pm. If the band are setting up in a separate room to the meal and speeches, they'll be able to set up straight away. Otherwise, the band will usually wait until the meal and speeches have finished avoiding any interruptions.

What time will the band start their sets?

Our Cambridgeshire wedding bands are always happy to work around your schedule. As a general rule, we recommend that the band starts no earlier than 8:30pm/9pm to avoid peaking too early on in the evening.

How long does a wedding band take to set up?

Function bands typically take around an hour to set up and sound check. If you've booked a large party band, you may need to allow between 90 minutes to 2 hours.

How many musicians are there in a wedding band?

Our most popular bands usually feature at least three musicians. Below are some of the most common line-ups we work with:

  • 3-piece indie rock party band: Lead Vocals/Guitar, Bass, Drums
  • 4-piece function band: Vocals/Guitar, Keys, Bass, Drums
  • 5-piece band: Vocals/Guitar, Keys, Bass, Sax, Drums
  • 5-piece: Male Vocals/Guitar, Female Vocals, Keys, Bass, Drums
  • 6-piece: Male Vocals/Guitar, Female Vocals, Keys, Bass, Sax, Drums
  • 7-piece party band: 2 x Vocals, Keys, Bass, Drums, 2-piece horn section

Of course, there are no limits if your venue has the space! We represent wedding bands that can offer an incredible line-up of 12 or more members to include multiple vocalists, percussion and choreographed dancers for an explosive live performance.
